2016 Forestry & Natural Resources

2016 State Winner and National Finalist

Eco Ed Cass County

North Dakota State University Extension Service

Todd Weinmann

Every fall, Cass County SCD hosts Eco-Ed (ecological education) field days for Cass County 7th and 8th grade students. This event educates students on a variety of conservation topics which support North Dakota State curriculum standards for life science.  For the past 3 years I have taught the students prairie rangeland ecosystems, native grass differences, forestry trees, and pollinators portions of this class.  

Last year the Central Cass had 108 students:

  • Pretest: 64%
  • Post test: 75%

Oak Grove had 40 students:

  • Pretest: 75%
  • Post test: 83%

The students did learn from my being their information they did not know.
